According to the WELL January 2017 addenda update, WELL Core and Shell recertification requirements are clarified as follows...

"In order to maintain a current certification and to verify that a WELL Certified building continues to perform in accordance with the requirements of the WELL Building Standard, the Core and Shell project would need to apply for recertification every three years."

WELL certification is valid for three years. In order to maintain certification, WELL certified projects must undergo Performance Verification.

An existing WELL project may file for recertification immediately prior to the three year anniversary of the original date the project was awarded its certification. The filing for recertification extends the validity of the original certification period for an additional 6 months. More information may be found in the WELL Certification Guidebook.
